Behind the scenes
In order to keep a residence of this stature working seamlessly, its faultless layout needs to offer a remarkable combination of practicality and efficiency while still retaining impeccable style. On the lower level, the nanny’s quarters (itself with a marble ensuite and custom closets) are accessed via a discreet back staircase that connects this floor – also containing a dedicated laundry room hosting a twin set of commercial-grade Miele TouchTronic washing machines and dryers, a Sub-Zero fridge and two-drawer freezer and ample storage space – with the kitchen on the main level before culminating at the top floor next to the guests’ quarters.
In addition, there is access directly from a four-car garage to the foot of the staircase ensuring groceries and shopping can be quickly transported to the necessary rooms.
Also located off the garage are the mechanical rooms – the engines of the house where the latest equipment ensures the smooth running of day-to-day operations. An energy-saving boiler system provides intelligent heating using advanced technology to ensure consistent room temperatures. Radiant heat, a rapid hot water circulation system that produces instant hot water, two large carbon filtration systems for superior air and water treatment, and an independent large-capacity hot water supply system solely for the master suite are just a few of the attentive items installed to produce maximum comfort.
A sophisticated Crestron top-of-the-line home automation system smoothly integrates its market-leading technology to cover security, video monitoring, lighting, audio, and air conditioning while a multi-functional PBX telephone system allows for convenient room-to-room dialing.
